    Munky's Journal

    CURRENTLY ATTEMPTING TO BULK (-NEED HELP-)

    Stats:
    Age- 16
    Height- 6'
    Weight- 140

    Goal weight: 160 by summer.

    What I ate today:

    Breakfast: Milk, and cereal with milk and a banana

    Lunch: Bologna and cheese sandwich, apple, chips, coke

    After school: 2 Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and Milk

    After work: Whey Protein

    Dinner: Roast beef, corn, mashed potatoes

    Before bed: Milk, Banana

    Calories: ????


    Workout:

    NOTE: ALL EXCERSISES USED BARBELL OR EZ-CURL BAR

    Bench Press: 3x10 115lbs

    Preacher Curls: 3x10 75lbs (Note: Add more weight)

    Military Press: 2x10 65lbs

    Reverse Curls: 1x10 50lbs

    Bent Over Rows: 2x8 95lbs

    Squats: 3x10 100lbs


    Well first thing i'm noticing is i need to eat more. The problem is i don't know what to eat or how to cook i guess its a good time to learn how too. Also i need to start counting calories as i'm aware i need to eat in the neighborhood of 3,100 cals. By the way i'm making this sort of a warm up week for me. The full body split i'm using now is just to get me used to working out again i'm gonna be using a split that looks somethin like this:

    Mon: Chest/Triceps
    Tuesday: off
    wedn: Shoulders/biceps
    thurs: back
    Friday:Legs
    Sat:off
    sund:off

    I think it will work pretty good for me. Now to explain my squats. I never did them before in my life really sooo. lol Wish me luck please give me any advice that you can.

    Well lately i've noticed i've been hungrier than ever. I feel like i can eat anything yet i don't. Maybe i'm to lazy or maybe its my lack of knowledge about what foods i should eat and what to cook. I thinks its about time for me to start doing some research in the diet section of the forums.

    Dude, cut back on the soda pops. Subsitute with water or milk. If you're hungry for sugary drinks, have fruit juice, chocolate milk or thirst quenchers (Gatorade, Powerade, etc) instead. Doesn't mean you can't drink Coke, but just cut back to a couple per week.

    Nitrean kicks ass, the chocolate flavor tastes like Nestle Quik.

    As for the squats, make sure you get the form right. When you get a membership to a gym, ask one of the trainers to guide you on the squats.

    But the lifts are pretty impressive for your weight, keep it up and good luck on your goals and your journal.

    Here's some to get you going.

    Thanks for the advice. Also i won't be signing up for a gym since i have some equipment at my house. I have a Squat rack i just bought recently for 300, a decent weight bench with preacher curl pad and leg extension thingy, and i have plenty of weights for now. I'm just gonna have to study by watching videos of people squating or just reading up on it.

    How did i miss this journal!!

    Glad to hear you're feeling better Munky. you are very young and very lean. The best advice i can give you is to eat up. some staples of a mass gaining diet are skim milk, natural peanut butter, sweet potatoes, salmon, bananas, and of course some good ol' whey shakes.

    Looking forward to seeing some good sessions in here bro. Welcome to WBB

    If you can't be a good example, at least be a terrible warning.

    hey welcome to the journals

    I think the best advice for now is EAT

    your 16, you should be able to eat everything in sight! weigh yourself once a week and if you dont gain at least a pound a week you need to eat more........

    Your job from now on is to raid your parents fridge on a regular basis making it impossible for your parents to keep anything in it without you eating it FIRST!

    OK. Well i haven't updated because i haven't been able to get back into the weight lifting rythmn or lifestyle in the past weeks/month. Well now since its gonna be a new year and after a bad experience with alcohol ( I began to halucinate a little, woke up with the left side of my face bruised, and i smelled like gasoline when i woke up). I've now decided to lift again seriously. I'm actually feeling it now. I'm in the right mood too lift. So my new years resolution is to QUIT DRINKING, and start weightlifting and hopefully live a happier more fullfilling life. Now this is my game face its now or never baby!!!
